Beyond Burgundy

Tagged:

Wild red and black orchard fruit, a dash of exotic spices, and if you’re lucky a bloom of roses in the finish – all you will find in a glass of finely crafted pinot noir. Burgundy is the benchmark. Yet a number of regions throughout the world yield fine expressions that can stand shoulder to shoulder with anything from France. Here are 10 riveting examples that display all the flavors found in fine pinot noir, all from sites other than Burgundy.

Hibiki 12 Year Whisky

Tagged:

Just as their popularity is skyrocketing in the West, Japanese whiskies are becoming scarce. Like their Scottish counterparts, age statements are disappearing from some Japanese bottlings, giving the distilleries more flexibility as they wait for aging stocks to mature. Which is why we had to jump at the chance to grab the last few cases in the US of Suntory’s masterful Hibiki 12-year-old.

Binny’s Handpicks from Journeyman Distillery

Tagged:

We’ve been vocal fans of Journeyman since their 2011 launch. They’ve given us gin, whiskey and everything in between. Their output has never been better than right now, and we have proof.

 

Journeyman Handpicks Binny's

 
They recently sent us three barrel samples of Last Feather Rye and three barrel samples of Buggy Whip Wheat. Like any other week, we had already tasted through barrel samples from a few other distilleries. Without naming names, we can tell you Journeyman beats one of the Big Boys hands down. All six JMan samples were so expressive and complex that it was tough to settle on just four. One shocking detail is that all of these samples were from 15 gallon barrels. Smaller barrels age faster than standard 53 gallon American barrels, but short cuts rarely yield fully mature whiskey. These samples, aged for a full year, show amazingly flavorful whiskey. Clearly, Journeyman has whisky production dialed in. Do yourself a favor and pick up one of these new Binny’s Handpicked Selections from Journeyman and see how it’s done.
